Honestly as a Nigerian Driver, it is difficult to say whether its the Nigerian police you are afraid of or the Federal road safety.

The Federal Road safety corps was founded in February 1988 and was saddled with the responsibility of keeping our roads safe and ensuring that only competent and Tested Drivers are allowed to drive in Nigeria.

This article is meant to educate you on the 37 FRSC Offences you likely may not know or have no idea of. So it my advice that you exercise patience and read through for you to know your rights.

Pursuant to section 10(4), 28 (2) of the FRSC Establishment Act 2007 and the Regulations 220 of NRTR, 2012.

37. Failure To install Speed Limit Device (FSLC)---#3000

Finally not forgetting #200 per day custody Fee

Don't also forget that you have an unfettered right tk court Trial

Although the rationale for fixing these penalties are unclear to me because some highly placed offences have small fines attached while minor offences go with huge fines and penalties.

Now you have an idea on what the FRSC Offences are and their penalties it is good to obey laid down rules. So if you know these rules are so difficult to keep, it my humble advice you park your car at home to avoid embarrassment.
